Baked Pumpkin Doughnuts
These were a hit with my doughnut loving kids!
The problem with donuts, lots of sugar and no
redeeming nutritional value.
In this recipe, pumpkin provides B vitamins,
iron, fiber, and Vitamin A.
Swerve is used in place of sticky sweet toppings.
It is my favorite natural sweetener. It comes in
both granular sugar, and the powdered sugar I
used here. Of course you can use regular
confectioners sugar or eliminate completely if you
don't have Swerve.
1/2 cup coconut sugar
1 cup pumpkin puree
1/2 cup almond milk
1 large egg white
1 tbsp coconut oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup whole wheat pastry flour

1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup Swerve Powdered sugar
